Sweden Dismisses Poker Network or Monopolies

Sweden's government has denied Svenska Spel, the country's betting and poker monopoly, permission to create an international poker network with other state-controlled gaming operators.

One apparent reason for the refusal is that Finance Minister Anders Borg would like to improve controls over Svenska Spel's online poker operation. Borg wants Svenska Spel to clearly and regularly inform players of their total winnings and losses, reports Sveriges Radio International, a Sweden-based news radio station.
